After 30 years traveling in Italy this is one of the very best restaurants I have come across. This includes many expensive restaurants in Milan and Rome.
Great food and good service. Would definitely come back on our next visit.
Besides excellent starters and main courses - also fantastic desert.
Highly recommended

Definitely impressed. The restaurant interior design was not impressing me that much but my girlfriend insisted so I came here. I must say that: a right decision. The chef is amazing, a kind person taking personal care of the wellness of his guests. He explained with love and details all the dishes we ordered.
From the appetizer to the main courses and the dessert, there was no one disappointing us. Definitely the right choice if u r looking for a fine and good food.
More over, considering that this is a 1 Michelin start restaurant, the portion was so generous and the final price was totally proportionate and not overabundant at all.

May be food was good, may be the preparation of the meals was cosy, may be this is the restaurant considered the one to must visit, but on my opinion it is absolutely average with horrible service and hospitality. No help in making meal's choice, no proper recommendation over the wine list, very long time passed from the order to the meals on the table, mistakes in taking the order. Trendy food presentation which do not live any memories. Unpolite and even rude attitude of the big tall bold man which should be the Chief Servant. Really pity

Mio caro Max120368,
penso semplicemente che siamo stati educati dai nostri genitori in maniera diversa. Divertente la traduzione automatica che mi indica come il Capo Servo , esattamente come vedi tu il personale di un ristorante.

I cannot say that the food was not good. It was for the most part. But from a one star Michellin restaurant I expect a more refined cuisine. The portions were way too big, making it hard to enjoy the dishes coming later. The plating was not attractive (nor was the restaurant). The service was average. I found the waitresses dressed badly in some sort of uniform (as they all had on the same outfit). The chef was in the dining room the whole time, which made me question who was cooking. He took orders and didn't seem happy about it. Apparently that is the norm, and not due to short staffing. So, a grumpy chef is watching you eat, while you might or might not be enjoying his cooking…which was hit and miss…awkward. The food was good when he kept basic, not so much when he tried too hard to be "contemporary". Also, I heard complaints that the menu hasn't changed in years… but I wouldn't know, as it was my first (and last) time.

Food is good, but if you know that the chef hasn't changed the menu for years and you experience the exact same dinner as 2 years ago it is disappointing to see that lack of motivation/interest from a Michelin starred chef. Waitresses are very nice.
